|@rich1949 & ace_omega OK I copied my XP cd to the |
computer and integrated SP2 into it, as per these instructions(http://www.winsupersite.com/showcase/windowsxp_sp2_slip
stream.asp), as well as extract the required Boot file from the XP disc, with the aid of Isobuster. Can you suggest a freeware or free trial burning software that can make bootable CDs and is compatible with Vista? The ones listed
on this page are not. Take your time on this if you want because I need to go to Microcenter in a few days and buy some more CD-rs as I am clean out of them.
On a side note, I read on a post on the Toshiba Support forum, by a guy who has the same laptop as me, and also had trouble locating the drivers for it. Someone commented that
Toshiba Europe's downloads page has a ton of drivers for Windows XP. Using the Toshiba Europe part name for this
computer (given by this helpful someone as Satellite L300D-PSLC8E), I downloaded Atheros wireless, ATI radeon, sound, touchpad, chipset, modem (hopefully I won't actually need it to connect to the Web), and camera (totalling
approximately 377 MB). Do you think I'm missing
something before I proceed?
